Duchess of Weaselskin

Vol 14, Iss 16 Bayfield, Colorado - While a chilly cold front was dumping about an inch of snow at the north end of the Vallecito Res., North of Bayfield, Colorado, was passing through our neck of the woods, Northwest Oklahoma was experiencing a full day of tornado watches and warnings Saturday, April 14, 2012.

From Woodward through Woods county, a bird-echo cloud formation traveled in a NNE direction towards Wichita, Kansas via Shattuck, Mutual, Waynoka, Hopeton, Dacoma, Ingersoll, Cherokee, Byron, Amorita, Driftwood and other towns leading towards the Kansas border, in the northwest corner of Oklahoma.

With March here, is Spring far behind? We were traveling to OKC from Alva the other afternoon, March 3, Monday. Out in the countryside a few miles south of Alva and west of Carmen, Oklahoma a huge gaggle of geese were heading north. When we were getting near Oklahoma City and traveling along the NW highway, a few miles west of OKC, we spotted another, but smaller, gaggle of geese heading northward.

Dacoma Started Out as Dakoma - 1977 ARC News Article

Vol 10, Iss 11 I'm sorting through a few things of my mother's and have found an unidentified newspaper clipping. I know it's from the Alva Review-Courier, due to the classified ads and newspaper phone numbers on the back side, but there is no date. A reference in the article indicates it was published in 1977, which is about the time that the Cherokee Strip Volunteer League was publishing their centennial volume. (I've left the punctuation and spelling as published, though the urge to make corrections was quite strong).
